A fantastic range of information and exhibits, with several short films and one full length 80 minute documentary, making this a good choice to fill a whole rainy day in Auckland. There's plenty for kids to do such as jigsaws and interactive boat design, a...More
I recently visited this museum and it was a very good experience. Admittedly, it is the beginning of the season and there were construction works ongoing.
The museum was quiet except for a secondary school visit and there was plenty enough to absorb. It could...More
The New Zealand Maritime Museum makes for a great half day trip, and can be knocked over in about four hours. There’s a cannon that gets fired every midday. The museum tracks maritime history in New Zealand all the way from the Maori people to...More
Located in the harbor area, this museum does a great job of presenting the history of maritime activity in New Zealand, everything from early Polynesian sailing canoes to modern shipping, and a special display of the Americas Cup ships.The displays are thoughtfully presented, and special...More
This lively, informative museum emphasizes New Zealand's long - and very strong - association with the sea, and had some interesting displays showing how immigrants to the country travelled there over the years. Nice harbourside location, helpful staff, good gift shop.
We experienced a unique way of immersing ourselves through sailing. It made us feel like real voyagers and my boyfriend even got to help with the main sail (the white flag portion of the ship -->im not exactly sure how to call it) Nevertheless, we...More

North Island: If you plan to start in Bay of Islands, take the shuttle flight (50 minutes) instead of van transfer (4-5 hours). I stayed in Paihia. Take tour to Cape Reinga (full day). Visit Russell & Kauri Puketi... More
North Island: If you plan to start in Bay of Islands, take the shuttle flight (50 minutes) instead of van transfer (4-5 hours). I stayed in Paihia. Take tour to Cape Reinga (full day). Visit Russell & Kauri Puketi forest. I hired a local taxi for the forest & drive local area through the information center Paihia. You can book the Cape on line. Be sure to visit the Waitangi Treaty Estate. Auckland: Maritime Museum, lots of restaurants around the area. Going South: Waimangu Volcanic Valley, Hobbiton Movie set, Queenstown, Milford Sound, Franz Josef Glacier & stay in Hokitika. lots of Art shops. Pancake Rocks at Dolomite Point. Tour around Christchurch. Wellington: Cable car to the top & walk back through the gardens. Don’t miss the history at the Roxi theatre and National Museum. The Anzac wing is amazing. The whole museum is very well done with lots for everyone in the family. Hope you have a good trip

Hi Mike, apologies for the delay in our response, we didn't get a notification about this question. At present we don't take online bookings system for general entry for the public, just for harbour sailings as they can sell out. General admission tickets are always available at the front desk up until 4pm each day which is the last entry time for the museum.
